Beef and Mushroom Stroganoff


This is another one of those dishes that I feel like most people enjoyed during their childhood as quick and easy comfort food dish. Like many of those other dishes, it's also something I'd never had before.

I had this recipe saved from Cooking Light magazine for quite some time but never got around to making it. The last time that we bought a beef tenderloin (I cut it myself) I had an odd amount of beef left over that I quickly realized would be great to turn into beef tips. Going through my recipe binder looking for something to make with those beef tips resulted in finding this recipe first.

    • 5 oz. wide egg noodles
    • 1 tbsp. canola oil
    • 1 lb. beef tips 
    • 3/4 tsp. salt
    • 1/2 tsp. pepper
    • 1 cup leek, thinly sliced
    • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme
    • 2 tbsp. garlic, minced
    • 6 oz. shiitake mushrooms, sliced
    • 1 tbsp. all purpose flour
    • 1/2 tsp. paprika
    • 1 cup low-sodium beef stock
    • 1/2 cup light sour cream
    • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1. Cook noodles according to package directions, drain and set aside.
2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the beef and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for 2 minutes on each side or until cooked through and browned on all sides. Remove from skillet.
3. Reduce the heat to medium and add in the leek, thyme, garlic, and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Sprinkle the flour and paprika over the mixture and cook for 30 more seconds, stirring constantly.
4. Add in the beef stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 2 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Return the beef to the skillet and stir in the sour cream. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
5. Serve over the noodles and garnish with parsley.

I really enjoyed this but Tom told me it didn't taste like any stroganoff he's ever had. I looked up a few other recipes and this seems pretty spot on, so who knows what he was eating! :)
